that he’s now ranked inside the world’s top 15, less than 20 tournaments into his professional career, after he made the move nine months ago. He captured his first PGA Tour title six weeks ago at the Farmers Insurance Open, and his previous two results prior to this week’s second-place finish were a T3 (again behind Johnson) at the WGC-Mexico Championship and a T5 at Pebble Beach. It took Tiger Woods until his fourth year as a pro to hoist some WGC silverware. Rahm has almost done it twice in his first year. And while we’re discussing things even Tiger didn’t achieve, Johnson’s latest victory means he’s the only player in history – Woods included – to have won all four WGC events in his career. To be fair, Woods has only had two cracks at the HSBC Champions, but with the top of men’s golf unquestionably more competitive than it’s ever been, Johnson’s achievement is pretty damn impressive. After collecting his sixth title in 17 PGA Tour starts, Johnson received the ultimate compliment from his young Spanish opponent. “His power off the tee, it's amazing how he's able to keep cool the entire round. It amazes me. And he's just a perfect, complete player,” Rahm said. “Honestly, he doesn't really make mistakes. I think he's learned from what he's done in the past and he's embracing it now and that's why he's winning tournaments. ... he’s the hottest player on Earth.” With this latest victory coming after successes at the WGC-Mexico Championship and the Genesis Open, Johnson now has three consecutive PGA Tour titles (never mind 16 top-10s in his last 20 starts). The World No.1 was due to play the Shell Houston Open this week for a traditional pre-Masters hit-out, but he withdrew on Monday night citing fatigue. "After a great deal of thought and consultation with my team, I have decided to withdraw from this week's Shell Houston Open,” Johnson said in a statement. “Having "HE'S JUST A PERFECT, COMPLETE PLAYER." – JON RAHM US OPEN JUNE 2016 BMW CHAMPIONSHIP SEPTEMBER 2016 GENESIS OPEN FEBRUARY 19, 2017 WGC MEXICO CHAMPIONSHIP MARCH 5, 2017 WGC DELL MATCH PLAY MARCH 26, 2017
